Comment on Medicare SGD Funding Today!

Medicare Funding Alert
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and you are feeling recharged for some advocacy work.

Medicare has given all of us the opportunity to comment on how Speech Generating Devices (SGDs) should be covered in the future, but with a comment deadline of December 6th, the window for comment submission is closing fast.

This is a critical opportunity to help educate Medicare about the people we work with who do not use natural speech and who deserve every right to communicate using the most appropriate technology available.

Please use a few minutes today to take action on this issue!
